About Pride Mountain Vineyards
Nestled above the Spring Mountain fog, on the Napa-Sonoma county line, Pride Mountain Vineyard sits on a former 340-acre agricultural Summit Ranch. In 1989, when Jim and Carolyn Pride purchased the spread they planned on growing grapes to sell, but soon caught the bug and built a winery.

(blended with 9% merlot and 6% petit verdot): Subdued but pure aromas of cassis, licorice, herbs and tobacco leaf, complicated by notes of sweet butter, pepper and vanillin oak. Perfumed and fine-grained in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness and very good thrust to the black cherry, currant and tobacco leaf flavors. Finishes with a firm spine of lively acids and chalky tannins and very good length. As with the merlot, the fruit was picked into early November. Production here was 5,750 cases.
